Director of Finance


We are looking for a Director of Finance or part-time CFO that can bring an experienced, managerial rigor to our overall financial performance while simultaneously handling many of the focused tasks to achieve that performance.  The in-house position is in direct view of becoming an influential core team member as our company’s growth targets are achieved and personnel infrastructure is built out (with your help); until then this is a hands-on role working directly with the founders.  You should have particular strengths in building management tools, modeling behavior, and driving organization with powerful Excel spreadsheets.

You’ll be implementing and ensuring compliance with internal financial reporting, including bookkeeping, payroll, and coordination with 3rd parties on tax preparation.  Additionally, you’ll be setting budgets, marketing spend, figuring unit economics, and syncing with operations on demand planning and supply logistics to optimize working capital. Fundamentally, you’ll be the domain expert on anything and everything that can be tracked quantitatively.  This means you’ll be working with every team inside quip to bring a level of quantitative command and control to guide decision making.

Your work will be the foundation of how quip presents itself to every outside investor, lender, major retailers, and bank.  Experience with fundraising and due diligence is a plus and you should expect to meet and work with outside investors to present our company and show off our performance.

Typical Duties:

  • Manage financial reporting, track customer behavior, build data analyses
  • Optimize working capital by synchronizing with operations
  • Bookkeeping, payroll, coordination with outside tax preparation
  • Define accounting structures, rules, and policies for both internal and external bookkeeping
  • Evaluate and implement new technology to improve existing financial systems
  • Plan and strategize around fund raising from a financial and strategic perspective

This might describe you:

  • Bachelor’s degree or more in business, accounting, finance, economics, or a related field.  We are happy to make exceptions for well qualified experience
  • Knowledge of generally accepted accounting principles
  • Experience in accounting, taxation, and asset allocation, organizational behavior, and business management.
  • Proficiency in accounting, word processing, databases, spreadsheets, and all other related computer programs.
  • Knowledge of the typical systems used to perform heavy data analysis over hundreds of thousands of records.  Any specific ability with SQL and other data analytics tools is a bonus.
  • Familiarity with typical due diligence activities involved in fundraising from Series A and beyond
  • Experience scaling a consumer startup is a plus
  • Good sense of humor (we are called quip after all ;) )
  • Brush teeth for two minutes, twice a day and smile often
  • Experienced and independent manager with strong interpersonal skills

About Quip:
We built quip to make great oral care more simple, enjoyable and accessible. Our front facing product is a beautifully simple electric toothbrush and toothpaste set that are refreshed automatically on a 3-monthly schedule, but our product and service offering will soon be growing. The future of quip will see an increasing focus on our digital platform that will provide a link to professional dental services and partner initiatives to create an operation on a whole different scale to one of purely ecommerce. We pride ourselves on great design and our brand values of simplicity, honesty and accessibility are applied in both physical and digital spheres and are central to how we interact with our community.

Location:We're in DUMBO, Brooklyn home of many creative companies and more importantly, lots of pizza and a shake shack. We are closest to the High Street stop on the A/C line, York Street stop on the F, and the Clark Street stop on the 2/3
